How to Cook: Stir Fry

I love making stir fry for many reasons; it’s quick, easy, versatile, and allows me to eat my 5 a day in one delicious helping! There are so many combinations of sauces, vegetables, and seasonings to try that if I did a recipe for each one it’ll never end! So wy not take this as a base and then chop, change, and experiment your way through some more flavours? Trust me, you will never get bored of this 20 minute dish.



  • Egg Noodles (1 nest per person)
  • 500g Diced Beef
  • Mixed Vegetables
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Worcester Sauce
  • Stir Fry Sauce of choice


  1. In a wok, fry the diced beef with the Worcester sauce and soy sauce in a drop of oil until cooked through.
  2. While this is cooking, in a pan of boiling water, par-boil your vegetables. This will take about 10-15 minutes as you still want them a tad crunchy!
  3. If you’ve bought egg noodles that have to be boiled then add your nests to a pan of boiling water. Add a generous amount of soy sauce to the water so it creates a light brown and cook in regards to the cooking instructions. I like to add soy sauce to the water I cook the noodles in to give them some flavour.
  4. Remove the water from the vegetables and add them to the wok with the cooked meat. Add the packet sauce, stir, and simmer for 2 minutes (I tend to use Hoisin and Garlic, Chow Mein, or Oyster and Spring Onion mixes bought from my local supermarket).
  5. Add the vegetables and noodles and fully incorporate. Leave to cook for a few minutes until all ingredients are covered in sauce and serve.
